Ann-Marie’s evidence describes her experience of abuse while in the care of several faith-based institutions. Ann-Marie describes the great impact the abuse has had on her life, and the obstacles and challenges she has experienced while seeking redress. Ann-Marie sought redress both through engaging with the Abuse Protocol Committee of the Archdiocese of Wellington, and through laying a complaint with the Police. Her Police complaint eventually resulted in a conviction and Ann-Marie talks about the court process, what happened at the hearings and how members of the Church were involved.
